...but with a Blue Beetle whose left foot is an eight inch shorter than his right.

Sigh...

...otherwise, the final five were quite nice.

I'm sad to see it go but when I get something like this, it makes it easier. It's the first time it's happened to me, actually.

Otherwise...wow...great run on a great line of figures with incredible character selection. Rest in Peace, old friend.

Damn. Recommend Kaiser doll stand or if you can't stand the leg difference, get a new Blue Beetle on Ebay. But yeah, this is not the way for JLU to go out.

Wow. That's a BIG discrepancy. Sorry to see that. I finally got the last three pack in (on the last day of 2012 -- out with the old) and my Toyman had several smudges. Fortunately I was able to get them off.

Hey, how were you able to get the smudges off? My Toyman has them too.

I was able to scratch them off with my fingernail. If that didn't work, I would have used a scrubbing sponge (the plastic kind with the rough green pad). After that, I would have used a very fine grade sandpaper that I have for customizing, and so on up the grittiness scale until I got it off. As you can tell, I've developed a very detailed process over years of dealing with JLU.

Sandpaper is great unless the part is painted, and then you run the risk of stripping off the paint and having to repaint. I've been able to very lightly sand off smudges while leaving the paint intact, though. It takes a VERY light touch with the finest-grade sandpaper you can get.

My toyman also came with smudges, but i was able to wipe it off with just my fingers, nothing fancy.

My Beetle is similar. I've read that many others also have the same issue. On a similar topic I find that my Fire's head/neck is rubbery (similar to Huntress). Is the neck is a seperate more flexible piece from the head or is it just really rubbery.

Honestly I am a little more then unhappy with Dr Destiny he has the same problem. Notice that most of the newer leg molds Firefly, Toyman do not have this problem. I think it honestly something that should be brought up, If I ever got to meet Toyguru I would bring it up. Sorry but I loved this line it, and I do not feel I am being a baby by just asking that both his legs be the same length ....
